MALIBU—The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has ruled the death of a bicyclist who died in a crash with a Metro bus on Saturday, October 13 as accidental.

The findings of the preliminary investigation, which were announced on Monday, October 15 revealed that the 36-year-old woman succumbed to multiple traumatic injuries when she was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in the 25000 block of Pacific Coast Highway. The victim has been identified as Marisela Echeverria of Cypress Park who was an architect.

The report indicates the incident occurred when the woman apparently lost control of her bike after some trucks passed her. Her handlebar then hit a parked vehicle and the woman veered into the bus where she was dragged underneath it and crushed.

Although the driver of the vehicle was not arrested, an investigation by police is continuing.  The driver of the bus, which was in service on the 534 line at the time of the crash, was given a drug and alcohol test as part of standard procedure.

The deceased was an Ironman athlete and was also involved in Team in Training, a nonprofit organization that raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, according to reports.

Anyone with information about the bike crash is urged to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Malibu/Lost Hills Station at (818) 878-1808.
